"Thank you for taking the time to review my business proposal and helping me acquire my first Allstate Agency. I really appreciated the consultant aspect of your firm since this was my biggest investment in my business career. Gaining new information about an industry leader was certainly interesting and helpful. I truly appreciate your time, your talent, and your effects to keep this process painless and for the final closing as of June 1, 2013.
Thank you again for your expertise and knowledge of the insurance industry and I look forward to partnering with you in future endeavors."

"I may be a little biased since two of my super stars have come from Samm Consulting. - First note they specialize specifically on recruiting insurance producers & staff.
My office manager Jane, came from Samm. We were failing OYS requirements ending the year last year. Every month this year we are averaging 98% -100% on all requirements. Her focus is on retention, and the agency's 5 moments of truth. No one else does any servicing, she also sold 7K last month in additional. Melody in my office also came from Samm; she sold 3 life policies her second month of selling. Last week she sold a little over 14K in commercial New DWP, and 6K consecutively the prior two weeks."

"If you are considering the sale of your agency I would recommend, Mel Clemmons, to guide the deal… It's always better to sell before you have to have a sale. Mel Clemmons understands the climate which we find ourselves these days. He finds qualified buyers and puts them with quality agencies that may be considering the sell. His expertise was very helpful in moving my large agency and I would recommend him to anyone that is serious about selling on their own terms."
- Stephen Mitchell
"…Mel's knowledge of the purchasing process was a huge benefit and quite honestly because of him it made the purchases even possible…In the future if I decide to sell or buy another agency I would use his (Mel's) services again."
- Matt Devine
"SAMM CONSULTING worked with me for almost 1 year until the right opportunity was available. When that opportunity was presented, every situation was explained and all questions were answered. They did a great job of making me feel comfortable during what can be a stressful situation. If you are looking to buy an agency, please make sure you call them first. The experience and knowledge they offered made the difference in my purchase experience. When I have the opportunity to purchase again, I will only use SAMM CONSULTING!"
- Paul Rue II
"…Thanks for having the integrity, professionalism and ethical character to represent the seller and also assist the buyer with the acquisition of the seller's Book of Business. Not one time was there any issue of any sort. The deal was very smooth and comfortable from the beginning to end! That was largely because of your (Mel's) hard work and effort throughout the sell…"

"I want to thank you for your help. The sale of my insurance agency was very challenging, but because of your thorough assistance and direction, I was able to sell the agency…In 30 days you accomplished what I could not do in four months…"
- Steve Compton
"…I was and still feel a bit inexperienced about the purchase and acquisition of an Allstate agency, but Mel prepared me thoroughly and guided me through the channels…Overall, I would have been lost without Mel and so I am thankful he made himself available."
- Tevis Upton
"Thank you for making one of my life transitional dreams come true without the stress that I anticipated. You really are a great asset to any insurance agent who is in the market to sell their agency and for any new buyer who may be in the market to buy an existing agency. My experience with you was truly a "Win/Win" experience.
Keep up the good work. Thanks again."
- Lisa L. Whitstine
"I was told there was no way I could get the price I wanted or the terms that I required.
Not only did you get me the price I wanted, to have it on my terms and closing in less than 60 days was the icing on the cake. Having the choice of two legitimate, QUALIFIED, buyers in the same week gave me the flexibility to have a voice in choosing who would be servicing my clients and my staff. This was a very important factor to me."
- Peter Mansolillo

"During my time as an agent, I have purchased over 12 agencies and every one of them has been challenging, or so I thought. When I went to purchase the 2 newest locations in Houston, I never did imagine I would need your assistance. You turned what I soon thought to be an impossible situation into something realistic."
- Brent Walters
"Mel was in constant learning mode but always willing to share his processes and what worked for him as well as his agency. He was always thinking outside the box. He also understood the value of hiring, developing and retaining a good staff team."

"I Shirley Jervis, recommend SAMM Consulting LLC one hundred percent as the best consultant to trust to sell an Allstate Agency.
- Shirley Jervis
"In our decision to sell our Agency, I reached out to an Allstate agent for recommendations. Without hesitation, she referred Mel Clemmons of Samm Consulting. Although, I previously had the great pleasure of meeting Mel on an Allstate payoff trip in 2006, I wanted to be absolutely sure that I was making the right decision. Upon further research, I learned Mel and his team has successfully assisted many agents in the buying and selling process."

"Mel Clemmons helped me through the process of selling my large agency. He assisted me on getting a fair arrangement for both parties.

For that I am grateful for Mel's knowledge, a numbers guy and just a plain ole nice guy."
